Watcher West of the White City

Eadyth returns, now dressed in the garb of Gondor, to watch over Dol Amroth, west of Minas Tirith. All along the watchtower she stands with her fellow sentinels keeping a look out for any corsair threats that may engage Prince Imrahil and his people. 

I created this outfit only after I emerged from the Paths of the Dead, as I felt that after spending such a long time in Rohan and in my Rohirrim outfit , I needed something new and fresh. Besides, it seemed wrong to wear anything else than a Gondor-themed outfit whilst running around defeating corsairs by the Bays of Belfalas. 

I love how half the outfit are Dunland quest rewards and yet fit so well as Gondorian armour, and I especially love how versatile the chest piece is by simply changing the colour - I think I've seen players use it for Rohirrim outfits too. Simple touches like the shoulder cloth Eadyth wears that bears the White Tree does enough to remind anybody of Gondor.

The helm has a nice winged shape on the sides that, while is not exactly the same as, reminded me of the Heavy Nadhin Mask, and instantly I thought it would be the perfect helmet for a Gondor-themed outfit. Though the patch of bronze patch on the helm is the only one of its colour throughout the entire outfit, it doesn't seem out of place as it blends nicely with the silvers, almost acting as a rusted section of a once silver-coloured section. 

Another colour that is one of its kind in this outfit would be the dark green found on the sleeves of the hauberk. This is undyeable, and has caused me a lot of trouble in the past with other outfits that never made it to the blog, but for some reason I felt that it looked well here, adding another tint to the almost-full blue outfit; I just think the green adds an interesting flavour to the overall navy.
